It's hard for me to believe all the colors and beautiful flowers you have in your garden when it is still a cold wasteland over here! How wonderful to go outside and see this all summer! I'll have to wait a month or so. Love and hugs to you Diane.

Hi Thisisme, you must have a very green thumb! These photos are absolutely beautiful! The images were so sharp and vivid...love your Nikon. We had to enlist the aid of a lawn service beginning this week. You are blessed to live in the midst of such beauty.

Is that your garden? That is fabulous!! I would love to see more.

And I love how you get around the wordless part of Wednesday by explaining it in the title. giggle

I am jealous sweet thang. I wish I had that much color in my yard. Your pictures are gorgeous. I am heading off in a few minutes to meet my sister for breakfast trying to continue staying close even though it requires a little more driving on our parts. Only 5 AM & will meet at 6:30. Will take me about 30 minutes to get there. Have a wonderful rest of your day.
Hugs,
Odie

My eyes have had a feast this morning! Those are all absolutely gorgeous. Wow- they make me thankful to the Lord that He made such beauty on this earth. Thank you for sharing!

When my students and I are walking and we see beautiful flowers like these, we stop and say, "Thank you, God for my eyes." I hope they remember to do this all of their lives. My azalea bush is budding, and I am so excited.

Hi Diane, such beauty you have there. Spring is lovely isn't it?! Hope you're having a nice day, it's a bit dull here in Dublin but it's alright and not too cold. Heading out for my lunch walk, they have builders in the office :P
Have a great day my friend! Big hugs!

I'm forced to make a citizen's arrest, Thisisme! You violated the rules of Wordless Wednesday by using a dozen of them at the top of this post! (LOL) I am delighted to see your garden bursting forth with colorful, fragrant flowers! By the time I had scrolled halfway down the page I was beginning to think I was on Desiree's blog! (LOL) Your garden is much farther along than it was at this same time last year, isn't it? Remember a year ago how you were praying for a break in the gloomy weather in time for Alison's wedding ... and got it? Now get out there in that lovely garden and have an afternoon cup of tea and remember how much you are admired by little old me.

What a lovely garden. The colors are just amazing. Hugs...Lu

Susan said...

It's no wonder we copy your gardens and develop our own little English gardens in the states! Just beautiful blooms...the violets, daffodils (mine didn't even bloom this year, just foliage, and I love the massive groups of lavendars and yellows. I'm speechless! Thank you for these lovely colors Thisisme. Hugs!

Retired English Teacher said...

Beautiful! Your garden looks terrific. I wish my flowers would start to bloom. Even when they do, they are blooming in a desert, so they never look as lush as yours.

Denise said...

Wow! Wonderful photos.This year I'm so happy for spring.You have a talent in photography-how fun.

Elizabeth Hernandez said...

Such beautiful signs of Spring. Each one more beautiful than the last. They surely do speak for themselves dont they. Your garden is stunning. I would love to come and have a cup of tea with you in your lvoely garden in Devon!

You know my love of flowers. So this makes me think or feel like that is what Heaven will feel like. Love it.

vintch said...

oh my! how beautiful, sweet friend! what a lovely peek into the spring that has sprung all around you:) i have been a little MIA from the bloggy world as i've been sick for almost three weeks, but what a BLESSING to come to your sweet space!

Craziness abounds said...

Those are beautiful! Thank you for taking close ups too. I could identify each plant. If they are far away pictures it makes it hard. I wish I have my old garden back now. :)

EmptyNester said...

Wow! Absolutely gorgeous! Maybe you could come over here and do that in my yard? PLEASE!!!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Your gorgeous pictures speak volumes. You don't have to say a word. Spring is here!
Hugs,

Diane - your garden is beautiful. We just had our second serious Hail Storm which promptly destroyed the buds that were trying to peek out and grab the few scarce rays of sun.

Looks like all the "blooming" weather is over in your small corner of the world...so, my dear, enjoy it for me, will you!

And, I find your new header picture to be intoxicating - I want to lean in and breath in deeply to catch the fragrance of your lovely bouquet.

Have a wonderful weekend ahead.
